Would this lens be good for macro, and for wide angle in a cathedral...can it be used for fish eye effects? Will it support f8 and f11...we want everything super sharp, especially our portraits. Will it fit in my shirt pocket?
Asked by: Dan
The Canon 135mm lens is not a macro, wide angle or fisheye lens and not recommended for wide angle views in a church. It can be used at f8 and f11 and it is a very sharp lens. It is 3.5 by 5.1 inches and weighs 2.1 pounds so it would not fit into a shirt pocket.

Asked by: Leroy
As of today, 01/03/23 we haven't received the Canon RF 135mm f/1.8 L IS USM Lens and have not had a chance to test it yet, but in general 135mm L series lenses do have flat compression that is great for tight headshots.

does anyone know if this lens is the successor to the 135mm f2? with IS on this version?
Asked by: Ashton
The 135mm f2 is an EF mount lens. The Canon RF 135mm f/1.8 L IS USM Lens is specifically for RF mount so is optimized for that and is different than the one you referenced.

Canon actually says a total of 8 stops when you combine in-camera stabilization with the in-lens stabilization of the 135mm f/1.8 (which is a lot).
